Hard Boiled Eggs in Cups

I love having soft or hard boil eggs for breakfast. Usually boiled eggs are eggs from chicken but duck or quail eggs also are tasty. These eggs cooked with their shells in the boiling water and you can have hard boiled eggs with cooked egg white and egg yolk or soft boiled egg which leave the yolk liquid or softly cooked.

There are different tools or gadgets for making boiled eggs. I used my small coffee cups for making boiled eggs and turned out beautiful.

تخم آبپز فنجانی

من خودم شخصن خیلی دوست دارم تخم مرغ آبپز چه به صورت سفت یا  عسلی برای صبحونه داشته باشم. برای درست کردن تخم مرغ آبپز معممولن از تخم مرغ استفاده مییشه ولی با تخم بلدرچین – اردگ و … هم امکان داره. تخم مرغ آبپز کردن یعنی داخل یک قابلمه تخم مرغ ها رو با پوستش قرار می دیم و میگذاریم یا به صورت سفت پخته بشه که در این صورت زرده و سفید پخته میشه ویا تخم مرغ عسلی درست کرد که زرده تخم مرغ شل و آبکی خواهد بود.

وسایل و ابزار مختلفی برای درست کردن تخم مرغ آبپزهست. من امروز صبح با فنجون قهوه خوری تخم مرغ آبپز درست کردم و باسس خوشمزه ای که بهش اضافه کردم یک تخم مرغ خیلی خوشمزه و خوشرنگ درست شد.

مواد لازم

چهار تخم مرغ

چهار فنجان کوچک قهوه خوری

نمک و فلفل قرمز خشک به میزان نیاز

کمی پاپریکا

کره

روغن زیتون یا روغن مایع

طرز تهیه

داخل هر فنجان به اندازه یک ق غذاخوری روغن مایع ریخته و دیواره های فنجان ها را چرب کنید. داخل هر فنجان یک تخم مرغ شکسته و فنجان ها را داخل یک قابلمه که به اندازه چهار فنجان جا داشته باشد قرار دهید و آب به مثداری که کمتر از نصف قد فنجان را بگییرد آب اضافه کنید.

در قابلمه را گذاشته و اجازه دهید برای 10-8 دقیقه تخم مرغ ها سفت پخته شوند. در حالیکه که تخم مرغ ها در حال پختن هستن داخل یک تابه 1-2 ق غ کره یا روغن مایع ریخته و نمک و فلفل خشک و پاپریکا اضافه کرده و 1 دقیقه تفت دهید. پاپریکا رنگ و طعم خیلی خوشی به کره آب شده می دهد.

فنجانها را به صورت پشت و رو داخل بشقاب قرار داده و آن‌ها را بیرون بیاورید.

سس کره را روی تخم مرغ ها ریخته و با نان تست و ریحان سرو کنید.

My Savoury Bread (Cake)

Savoury bread (cake) is very popular in France.Savoury bread is one .Today I was thinking what kind of bread I make. I had a look into the fridge and found some olives and spring onions.

DSC_0913

 

Then I went to my small garden and collected some fresh basil and baked my savoury bread. But if you do not like basil, just easily add fillings of your choice. your favourite herbs such as dill, coriander or parsley. but you can add fillings of your choice.

DSC_0926.JPG

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper

Ingredients for filling

  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, chopped into chunks
  • 1 cup black/green olives
  • 1 lemon zest
  • small bunch of parsley
  • 2 spring onions, green part

Instructions

Preheated oven to 180C.

First purée basil and parsley leaves, green part of spring onions and lemon zest. This gives extraordinary flavour to our bread (cake).

For bread batter: place the flour in a large bowl. Add baking powder, salt and pepper. Mix together. Add eggs, milk and vegetable oil. Using a spatula and combine all together well.

Coat olives with 1tbsp of flour. This will prevent olives from sinking into the bottom when baking. Now add purée herbs, olives and chopped cheddar cheese. Combine all ingredients well together.

You can either lightly Butter the loaf pan or spray oil , so that parchment paper sticks on it. Then butter parchment paper.

Fill the pan with batter and Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes. Once bread is ready, remove from the oven, top the bread with drizzle of olive oil and grated cheddar cheese. Place the cake inside the oven again for 3 minutes until cheese is melted.
